Rouse, director of the Tennenbaum Institute at the Georgia Institute of Technology delivered two lectures to kick off a series of USC Viterbi School centennial lectures. He was hosted by the Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. In a morning talk entitiled The Future of Industrial Engineering: Shop Floors to Factories to Supply Chains to Enterprises Rouse outlined “enterprise transformation” as an essential part of growth and change in all organizations. “It’s important that enterprises understand what drives fundamental change, because without that understanding, most enterprises fail,” Rouse said .

Carl Wieman uses active learning tools to teach an undergraduate course at the University of Colorado in 2001. for faculty members through their authority to hire, promote, and grant tenure, he says. So the best way to sustain improvements in teaching and learning is to get departments to buy into the need to change the courses that they offer. And that’s begun to happen at UBC, one of Canada’s elite universities. Wieman’s passion for the subject, combined with his stature as a Nobelist, has focused national attention on the high attrition rate among students who declare an interest in earning a degree in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fi eld. It’s one of the biggest impediments to any effort to train more scientists and engineers. Leading a Global Transformation of the American Research University  We all acknowledge the extent to which globalization has in recent years led to unprecedented levels of change in areas from the economy to the environment, from the way we do business to the way we interact with media.

Leading a Global Transformation of the American Research University 

With the pace of globalization accelerating and its impact expanding, universities have begun to change as well, seeing increasing numbers of students flow beyond national borders, coordinating if not standardizing degrees and calendars, and collaborating both in research and in teaching. Despite these efforts, there is still no consensus about what globalization will ultimately mean for how universities educate our students, interact with peers, collaborate with governmental and private partners, and define our fundamental mission.

No single university can address this challenge on its own. These are the primary reasons we have decided to upend the global engagement model heretofore utilized by American universities.

He has not been alone. In 1998, none other than, Peter Drucker2 predicted that big universities would be “relics” within 30 years.3 Flash forward to today and you’d be reasonable to think that they have been quite wrong. University attendance is at an all time high. The percentage of young people enrolling in degree granting institutions has risen dramatically in the last 15 years 2007 while the percentage of 25- to 29-year-old Americans with a college degree doubled. Yet there are troubling indicators that the picture is not so rosy. This is a time of great peril for higher education as it’s constituted. Tapscott describes: How a new generation learns differently.What is the new model of pedagogy?
